1. The graphs shown in the first picture have both the mid-pipe and the Greddy installed. That is why they say header back. It is not just the Greddy SP2
2. The mid-pipe by itself was completed over a month ago and that is when they actually did the stock dyno run:
This DYNORUN.004 shown in the graph is SAE corrected and has the horsepower at 183.1 peak.
3. The graph shown here of the complete header-back system:
has the same .004 file but this time for some reason they show it uncorrected and the same curve only goes up to 178.4. Thus they decided to remove the 4.7 Horsepower for some reason.
I am guessing they are using this uncorrected curve from over a month or two ago to exaggerate the gains of the new complete system. Because it was probably much hotter at the dyno back then, the uncorrected is lower than the corrected. Now that it is cooler in Texas the uncorrected 200.1 they just got with the exhaust is probably close to being accurate but the 178.4 is not and should be 183.1. (or they should do a new stock run.)
They didn't do either.
The bottom line is they claim 21.7. Hp of gains, but unless they plot both curves corrected, the 178.4 should be 183.1 and the gains should probably only be 17.0 or less. (heck now that it is cooler outside, the uncorrected 200.1 might only be actually 195 or so and thus the gains are even less than 17.0)
If it was an honest mistake by Rotary Performance, I appologize in advance. But this is why people ask to see the actual dynorun files. It is very easy to distort them in your favor. I think they did it here whether they meant to or not.

OK, that makes more sense. I am often misled by thinking that plots on the same graph occurred the same day. 17whp from headers back is much more believable. However, I thought the car was generally pulling closer to 190whp stock. 183 is still low.
